Impossible to get Firefox to remember passwords

Recently, I had a total crash. Reference Dell should replace the entire machine. On the older machine I was running Windows 7 Ultimate, 64-bit. Now I'm on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. On the older machine Firefox asked if I wanted to that it to remember the password. On the new machine that does not happen. "Remember passwords for Sites" is turned on. I'm not running in private browsing mode. I had to give up Firefox and go back to IE. Is not a happy choice.


Have you moved all the files from the old computer to the new computer or did you start with a new Firefox profile?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/tools > Modules > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is the cause of the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/tools > Modules > appearance).

  • Do not click on the reset button on the start safe mode window or make changes.

It is possible that there is a problem with key3db and signons.sqlite files that store the encrypted names and passwords in Firefox.

In the Firefox profile folder, rename the files key3db and signons.sqlite.

You can add .old files (key3.db.old and signons.sqlite.old) names or move them to another folder to make it possible to cancel the action.

You must define a new master password after renaming or removing the signons3.txt and all the currently saved passwords are lost.

If that worked, then you can delete the renamed files that are no longer needed.
